'Lex informatica' is an expression referring to technical choices that impose certain behaviours upon web users. It includes both the establishment of specific rules for the flow of digital information upon the Web, and the possibility to impose procedural limitations upon said flow. The Web becomes simultaneously centralized and decentralized, it adapts and repolarizes itself in infinite variations, eluding territories, structuring immaterial confines within global space. The expression "Code is law" denotes that technological architectures of the internet contain self-organizing codes and regulatory languages that establish and control the rules of access to the digital content of the Web.
